Aaron Rodgers may have ended up returning to the Green Bay Packers this offseason, but his Last Dance post with Davante Adams before the year began ultimately still came true.

The pair will now be making sweet touchdown symphonies with different musicians heading into the 2022 NFL season. But if you told Aaron Rodgers if this is how he imagined things would shake out, he reportedly would’ve been surprised.

The Packers QB wasn’t oblivious to Davante Adams’ “disconnect” with Green Bay, but he still believed they would’ve been able to reconcile their differences. That wasn’t the case.

According to sources, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was aware of Adams’ disconnect with the team. One source said Rodgers knew this was coming even before he signed his new contract with Green Bay, though another source close to the situation added that Rodgers still believed Adams would remain a Packer in 2022. After all, Adams said himself he wanted to be the highest-paid receiver in the NFL, and sources say the Packers were willing to exceed DeAndre Hopkins’ $27.25 million average annual salary to do that.

Aaron Rodgers gets blame for taking way too much of the salary cap with his gargantuan new deal. But while it may affect some roster moves later on, it wasn’t what forced Davante Adams’ hand in leaving.

Rodgers and a handful of Packers fans truly believed their run together as the best QB and WR duo wasn’t over. Now they have to find a way to replace their All-Pro stud.
